It was certainly a combination of factors that lead to the Amiga losing out to the PC, but Doom played a large role. If ID _had_ released Doom for the Amiga in a timely fashion (yes, with some assembley optimisation), it might have encouraged more people to upgrade.
Upgrades would have become cheaper as a result. It might have given the machine a few more years of shelf life.
